The LCC Police Department provides many services to students on campus for their safety and convenience.

LCC Police Sgt. Chad Beckett said the department offers the following services:

  • Free escort of students to their vehicles;
  • Helping to unlock vehicles (for a $1 fee);
  • Jump starting dead batteries (for a $1 fee);
  • Bicycle lock rentals (for a $1 fee);
  • Taking reports of stolen or lost property;
  • Taking reports of accidents or suspicious activity on campus.

“A lot of the complaints that come in from students are … (about) loss of property,” Beckett said. “Lately it has been the cellphones.”

There are a few different ways to contact the police department, which is open 24/7. There are “emergency poles” on campus, which can be used to call the dispatcher.

The sandard (517) 483-1800 phone number is also available 24/7.

The after-hours entrance to the police office, located on the second floor of the Gannon Building near the parking ramp, is open 24 hours a day, allowing students to talk to an officer directly.

Lastly, the police department has added a new option, the RAVE Guardian system, which allows anyone to text the dispatcher. Texts can be sent anonymously or with a signature.

Beckett suggested people pay attention to their surroundings and always remember where they are leaving their property.

“Remind yourself that your items are not secure,” Beckett said.

“You can also send a text to our dispatcher (via RAVE Guardian) that says, ‘I’m walking to my car in lot D’ and to check back with you in five minutes. And we will set a timer in dispatch and if we don’t hear from you … (we could) check the route in between.

“LCC campus is generally a safe place for students,” he added.

For more information about RAVE Guardian or to sign up for the RAVE Guardian texting system, contact the Help Desk at (517) 483-5221.
